Malick Mercier

Journalism from Brooklyn, NY

As a freshman journalism major, my focus is on telling stories that hit home and I’m elated to have Ithaca College as a part of my story. This past summer, I continued my work for AirlineGeeks.com including reporting a feature piece on the Intrepid Flight Deck.

Within the first two weeks of school, I went live with the news on Ithaca College’s VIC Radio and now do so every Thursday at 4:28pm! This year, a brand new ICTV show, Good Day Ithaca, was created. I am the social media - politics reporter. I am also an associate producer on ICTV’s Newswatch and a feature assistant producer on ICTV’s ICTV Reports. To boot, I am writing for The Ithacan! I am also putting my skills to use where my heart lies - volunteering. Through the WRFI group service project, I am reporting extensively on the homelessness crisis in Tompkins County, specifically its direct impact on the disabled. I have learned a lot about storytelling from shadowing local and national news organizations. I am thrilled by the opportunity to utilize this experience and knowledge at IC.
